Meanwhile, Andy's been furiously registering, slicing, dicing and generally working like a demon to pull out stem maps from the data so we can try and match them off the field data before we leave on weds night. He's produced a hugely downsampled pointcloud just to make life manageable until we can get our big machines in the lab on it. The examples below are from roughly 15 million points, which is < 1% of the data, and only from the upright scans. When we include the tilt scans, we'll obviously sample preferentially in the upper part of the canopy, and double the number of points.
